Overview

Biochemical Pathways offers a road map to modern biochemistry. In full and vivid color, it features detailed charts - each color-coded and accompanied by a brief explanation - of metabolic pathways and their relationship to regulation pathways. Important mechanisms of molecular biology are reviewed in the second part of the book. This encyclopedic compendium goes well beyond traditional biochemistry to cover some very specialized pathways and many aspects of regulation. Current, referenced, and easy-to-use, Biochemical Pathways is bound to become a classic in the field. It is a one-of-a-kind visual guide for researchers and scholars in all areas of the life sciences.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

Biochemical Pathways offers a truly unique road map to modern biochemistry. It is an atlas of multi-step reactions in biological systems. In full and vivid color, the book graphically represents this network of reactions with a series of chemical formulas along with two-dimensional spatial arrangements demonstrating each molecule's cellular, organic, and structural aspects. Encyclopedic, comprehensive, and clearly organized, this is an indispensable reference for any biochemist.

Editorial Reviews

Anatoly Bezkorovainy
This is a second edition atlas of metabolic pathways. The aim is to summarize biochemical pathways in an accessible and concise way. The editor specifically states that this book should not be used as a text. This book will serve as a reference for biochemists or microbiologists, from students to senior researchers. A wealth of up-to-date information with colorful illustrations and explanatory textual material is contained in this book. Plant, bacterial, and animal metabolisms are covered, though I was not able to locate the bifidus pathway or anything on NADH oxidases present in many microorganisms, especially lactobacilli. The first two chapters deal with some basic principles of biochemistry. They are well done and provide a good basis for the perusal of the rest of the book. The index is a bit too sparse for this type of a reference volume. It is organized by section numbers rather than page numbers, which may be awkward for some users. This is an attractive and authoritative book, which should be available to users in most, if not all, biomedical libraries.

Unlike a biochemistry textbook, this book provides concise information on the metabolic sequences in the pathways, the chemistry and enzymology of conversions, the regulation of turnover, and the effect of disorders. Detailed, color-coded charts are used to explain metabolic pathways and their relationship to regulation pathways. Topics include carbohydrates and the citrate cycle; amino acids and derivatives; tetrapyrroles; nucleic acid metabolism and protein synthesis in bacteria; glycosylated proteins and lipids; protein folding, transport, and degradation; oxidative phosphorylation and photosynthesis; cellular communication; eukaryotic transport; and antimicrobial defense systems.

Meet the Author

GERHARD MICHAL, PhD, has retired from research at Boehringer Mannheim GmbH (now Roche Diagnostics). He is internationally acclaimed for developing the "Biochemical Pathways" wall chart. The first edition, which was published some forty years ago, has been continuously updated and is used in many biochemistry laboratories around the world.

DIETMAR SCHOMBURG, PhD, is a Full Professor and Head of the Department of Bioinformatics and Biochemistry at the Technische Universität Carolo-Wilhelmina in Braunschweig. His research interests include protein structure and function, structural biochemistry, bioinformatics, and enzyme information/metabolic networks. Dr. Schomburg has been widely praised for establishing BRENDA, the principal source of enzyme function and property data.
